“I have found the one whom my soul loves.” (Song of Solomon 3:4) - Daily Bible Reflections August 28,2015


ALWAYS THE
BRIDESMAID
 
“Behold the Bridegroom! Come out to meet him!” – Matthew 25:6
 
       It’s always an honor to be part of a bridal entourage. But being a bridesmaid is more than just wearing a gown and partnering with a groomsman. You are the right-hand woman of the bride, helping her with the details of the wedding and ensuring she is prepared for her special day.
       Today’s Gospel is about the wise and foolish virgins. In Jewish tradition, their task is to carry oil lamps, go with the bride and light the way towards the home of the groom. This procession is sacred and, as we gleaned from the parable, the foolish virgins who did not have enough oil were banished from the wedding banquet. Coming unprepared spoils the wedding and is considered an insult to the bride and groom.
       This reminds us to be vigilant and always prepared for the coming of Jesus. We would not want Him to catch us off-guard and our lamps of faith fading, running out of oil. We would not want our Eternal Spouse to see us stained and muddied with our brokenness and sin. Like the wise virgins, we want to be prepared with our flasks filled with the oil of grace, so that Jesus, our Eternal Bridegroom, may find us faithful in waiting for Him.

Reflection: “I have found the one whom my soul loves.” (Song of Solomon 3:4)
 
Lord Jesus, though I may not know the day or the hour, may You find me faithful when You come again.
 
St. Augustine, bishop and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
